Maywood aka Dog's chamomille

Matricaria recutita

Description:

Wild Flower Of San Franscisco. Mayweed is not particularly invasive so individual plants can be hand weeded when the soil is damp. Don't let it flower because the seeds stay viable for over 10 years in the soil.

Cole,Yes you are absolutely correct. It is Chamomille. However " Chamomille
Nobile" is Roman Chamomille and is a short plant which grows about 3 to 6 inches.
As you can see in the picture too,this plant was much taller and is known as " German Chamomille"
Great ID suggestion!! Thanks again.:)
